The formation of the market entry solutions team was in response to State Street client demand, Carmichael shares with MFWire. The MES team compiles data from than 400 sources and provides additional context from more than 100 specialists, then delivers the information to existing clients in the form of playbooks.
Existing clients of State Street considering global expansion have access to playbooks on markets of domicile, markets of distribution, or special topics.
The market entry solutions team identifies Dublin, Luxembourg, and Cayman Islands as markets of domicile. Markets of distribution consist of nearly 40 other international marketplaces. Special topics in the past have been Brexit and Asia Passporting.
For the time being, State Street clients are able to request customized market profiles in terms of size, market growth, and cash flow based on investor appetite and product sales for no added cost, according to Carmichael.
